2016 has truly been amazing for my blogging journey.
From exploring the beautiful Gold Coast last March, a trip to Shanghai and much more collaboration with great brands. Safe to say 2016 has been the most productive year for Scoops of Joy.
Closing the year with a whole day pampering experience from Bio-Oil was like an icing on the cake.
Remember my Bio-Oil review post? I was selected as one of the 10 nominees for their blogging competition. All nominees were invited to Bio-Oil year-end event earlier this month and we were pampered all day.
The day started with hand massages using Bio-Oil followed by nail art. This part was a little embarrassing for me since I just moved to our own place and moving wreaked havoc on my nails. I apologized profusely to the lady who did my short nails. Not much to decorate when your nails were just cut short a few days prior to the event. Hah!
We met Ibu Tini the Product Manager of Bio-Oil Indonesia and had an insightful Q&A session about the product.
Held at the Morrissey Hotel Jakarta, we had lunch there and I got to catches up with a fellow blogger I haven’t met in a while, Mbak Mira from Rachanlie. It is always lovely to see familiar faces.
After lunch, it was time for the makeover session. Bio-Oil has arranged for make-up artists to get us all looking pretty for the photo shoot. I am absolutely in love with how my make-up turned out.
Photo shoot. The photo shoot was a big deal for me since I have never been the one who easily poses in front of a camera. I would rather be the one taking the photos, to be honest. So I was very nervous about this part since the first time I read the rundown on the invitation email. At the end, I told myself “Girl, you better get it done! You could use some new photos and this one will be professionally done.” Stepping outside of the comfort zone truly is something I’ve been motivating myself to do lately. Luckily, the designer – who lends us the outfits for the photo shoot – was there to direct me. Posing is not easy, yo! A big salute to all of you gorgeous fashion bloggers who pose beautifully on all their photos.
And viola…here are the photos and in case you haven’t notice, I am using one of them as my new profile photo here and on all my social media accounts.
To close the already amazing day, we had dinner and fun games along with an Indonesian celebrity, Revalina S. Temat. Bio-Oil announced the 3 winners of the blogging competition and everyone had a total blast.
Thank you Bio-Oil and Female Daily Network for this fun event!
